Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's children are not active on social media platforms, as per the revelation made by Garner. In an interview, Garner shared her perspective on social media use and how it affects teenagers. She disclosed that her children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, who she shares with her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, do not have social media accounts. Garner stated that she challenged her kids to find scientific evidence proving the benefits of social media use for teenagers before allowing them to use it. As of now, the children seem content with not having any social media presence. Despite not having a prominent social media presence, Garner continues to play different roles in her personal and professional life.
Regarding the feelings of Garner's children about not having social media accounts, she mentioned that her eldest child is thankful. She also expressed uncertainty about the future and whether she will be able to maintain the same stance with her younger children. Garner, who is 50 years old, also does not share any pictures of her children on her own social media profiles. She believes in protecting their privacy and has worked hard to maintain it. In a 2018 interview with E! News, the 13 Going on 30 actress emphasized her commitment to keeping her children out of the public eye and explained why she avoids sharing their pictures online.
Although Garner prioritizes her children's privacy, she has accompanied them to a few public events. In March, she was seen sitting courtside with her son Samuel at a Los Angeles Lakers game, and in December, she attended the White House State Dinner with her daughter Violet. Despite her divorce from Affleck being finalized in 2018, the former couple continues to work together as a team to raise their children. This was acknowledged by Affleck's current partner, Jennifer Lopez, in a November interview with Vogue. Lopez described Garner as an excellent co-parent and stated that she and Affleck work very well together.
Affleck has also commended Garner for her parenting skills. In a 2016 interview with E! News, a year after they announced their separation, the Oscar-winning actor expressed admiration for Garner's parenting abilities. He described her as a superhero mom and an incredible mother, and expressed his gratitude for having her as his co-parenting partner. Affleck also emphasized that their children's welfare is their top priority and that they always try their best to put their needs first.
